There are a number of reasons why a document may fail to send to Common App. Every time a document fails to send, Overgrad's support team will be notified so that we can investigate the issue. There are two cases, that require students to take action in their Common App account before we can try to send the documents gain.
Note for counselors: If an error requires student action and the student has completed the necessary steps to fix the issue, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the student name and email to let us know the action has been completed. We will then attempt to send the document(s) again.
